Question Star Archiver Multi-volume Scripts


Does anybody have a script for creating multi-volume archives with the STAR Archiver that they can share?

I may be misunderstanding this, but from a quick look at the documentation, can you not just use the -multivol option?

Well, I tried that, but when I provide the next filename, it just overwrites the first one created.

What was the full command (with arguments and options) that you used?
